Emperor Indonesia welcome Paul Benge as general manager

Emperor Divers is very pleased to introduce Paul Benge who has become our new Indonesia general manager.

Paul has vast experience of the area having spent several years in the region when he was one of the partners in Liquid Adventures Indonesia.

During that time he oversaw the construction and operation of two liveaboards – something that gives him a deep understanding of what makes both a great boat and a great trip.

His immediate task within Emperor is to maintain the excellent standard of holiday provided on our two beautiful Indonesia vessels – Emperor Harmoni and Emperor Raja Laut.

However, Paul is also keen to develop new ways of helping guests to explore the great beauty this country has to offer.

He said: “It’s a huge pleasure to have joined Emperor Divers. They are a company that has a great tradition of – and reputation for – providing fantastic diving holidays. As one of the biggest, longest-established and most-respected liveaboard companies in the world it is a privilege to have joined them.

“It’s also my absolute delight to be back in Indonesia. It’s a country I love and I’m so pleased to make it my home again.

“I want to be able to share my passion for this country with all our guests. We already offer a wide range of amazing itineraries which will take our divers to the most beautiful places and get them close to the finest marine life the world has to offer.

“But it’s not just about what’s below the water. Indonesia is a breathtakingly stunning place with diverse scenery and fascinating culture. I want to use my knowledge and experience of the country to find new and creative ways to share all it has to offer.

“We want to make sure each and every guest that sets foot on an Emperor boat gets a very special trip. And I want to take them on an adventure they will remember forever.”

Emperor Divers CEO Alex Bryant added: “I’m extremely happy to welcome Paul to the team. His experience in the hospitality industry, as well as years in Indonesia building and operating boats, brings a wealth of knowledge and a new dimension to the team as a whole.

“I look forward to many years of adventure together.”
